    Always good to cap an unused gas pipe. In Britain it is illegal for anyone who is not a "Gas Safe" registered professional engineer to do anything to a gas supply, not even to remove a hob.

    Should be a shut off, you want that closed and a cap, both.

    the gas supply would need to be turned off outside the house [unless it also supplies your boiler/furnace] and the line to the kitchen properly capped by the gas company

    There should be a On/Off flow valve on the gas line, turn the valve stem to crossways to shut off fuel supply.

    If no valve the fuel supply shut be turned off at the sourse and the line capped.

    You need to cap off the gas supply, absolutely. Leaving it uncapped will (not may) lead to explosions.

    You'll close the cut-off valve, of course, but that's not enough.

    You'll want to cap the line to keep debris out, against future need, and to prevent your death in the event the cut-off valve fails.

    Yes, you would need to contact your gas provider.
